C'mon guys not Brandon Davies that was Charles Abouo who is now currently
playing in Europe.
Come on Jeff Call, you should know the difference between Charles Abouo and
I truly hope the extra money $$$ that BYU gets for the change in seating is
worth it, BYU is losing more often in the Marriott Center, and the place is HALF
as effective in noise as it was before. I am amazed at how much we have lost in
home court advantage. Sad that money dictates all we do today. Like the
programs don't have enough money...probably have more than they ever
have...look at the ridiculous prices we pay for a tiny cup of ice cream...the
same almost as much as a half gallon costs at the creamery. Which...by the way,
is probably the cheapest made process anywhere...own your own cows, own your own
feedlots, own your own manufacturing and processing of the cream...always the
Goodness, it seems like every article I read has CWEB complaining about BYU
athletics. What does the economics of ice cream making have to do with playing
USU? Being a malcontent is not a great way to cheer on your team. Put on your
BYU shirt and be happier.
My question is what ever happened to the BYU team that had been predicted to
make a run at the conference title in December? They are now in a position of
not even making the NIT. Unless you can run the tables and make it to the
conference championship game, this program will need to start asking alot of
questions about itself. BYU basketball used to be exciting and the fans showed
up and were loud. What is happening to the men's athletic programs at BYU?
Maybe they should take a note from the page of the women's teams at BYU.
They seem to consistently put together a solid program.

against #250 Portland...Uhhh, me too? I guess? Not sure how you
I am a big BYU fan and I couldn't agree more with CWEB. Moving the students
behind one of the hoops was the worst idea BYU has ever had. I knew it would be
this way. BYU belongs to the students. It is the students team, so why should
they get the shaft. Too bad BYU athletics values money more than their fans now.
(See: Football Independence)
I agree with CWEB and agarrett. The luster and magic of the home court advantage
is gone. On the bright side we should be able to get Duke to play at the
Marriott center now.
#63 BYU is playing #112 USU who has arguably lost four of its top 5 players from
the beginning of the season. There is no reason BYU should lose this at home.
If they do, then they have a lot of questions that need answers.
Sorry guys, but moving the students behind the visiting team's 2nd half
basket was a good move, and this coming from a former student who used to camp
out overnight for first-come-first-served tickets before EVERY home game during
the Danny Ainge era.Having visiting teams shoot free throws into the
teeth of that zany student section during close games is going to make the
Marriott Center even more intimidating in years to come.The lack of
home court advantage this year has been more a product of a rebuilding BYU team,
than moving the students.
What, Brock Z got a new job as a sport caster? Is he done with basketball? Yes,
I want him sitting with those reporters in street clothes.
Glad the game is at the y this year. The home court almost always wins this
instate game. With the injuries the Aggies have had it would be difficult to
protect the home court this year.That said, Stew is a dangerous
coach. I expect a single digit loss.
I'm a byu student going to the game tonight. Don't like the move
behind the basket. I feel further away from the action, especially during the
first half when the opposing team is on the other side of the court. Some of the
great venues in basketball keep the students center stage (duke, Michigan
state). My position is understandably biased. What drives me crazy is looking
over and seeing all the empty seats where the student section used to be. Not a
great way to treat your most faithful and consistent fans.
The Aggies always bring their A game when they play BYU. I like this rivalry,
except when it is played in Logan with rabid and unsportsmanlike fans (glad they
won't be harassing Davies any more). There is a point at which the line
gets crossed between excited fanbase and inappropriate behavior.
usu has really fallen this year. They have lost a few home games and lose to
some pretty poor road teams and barely beat some poor teams at home. This
won't have the intensity as it would have to begin the season. BYU simply
has too much depth, and they are incredibly hard to beat at home. It will be a solid BYU win.

Woulda coulda shouldaMissing three season starters and playing away
and it still comes down to final shot. Already looking forward to next year.
